Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and Speaker of the House Brian
On February 5th, Lujan Grisham ordered a mass withdrawal of hundreds of New Mexico National Guard troops from the U.S./Mexico border, an apparent politically-charged move, to fire up the anti-wall, pro-illegal immigrant base, and jab at the duly elected President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
The Change.org petition cites the specifics for which the call for impeachment is based, citing detailed reasons why the governor’s actions are grounds for impeachment, as they aid and give comfort to the United States’ enemies (criminal illegal aliens).
Pursuant to Article II, Section 2 of the New Mexico Constitution, it reads: “The people of the state have the sole and exclusive right to govern themselves as a free, sovereign and independent state.“
Article II Section 16 reads: “Treason against the state shall consist only in levying war against it, adhering to its enemies, or giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason.“
Article IV, Section 36 reads: “All state officers and judges of the district court shall be liable to impeachment for crimes, misdemeanors, and malfeasance in office, but judgment in such cases shall not extend further than removal from office and disqualification to hold any office of honor, trust or profit, or to vote under the laws of this state…”
From reading the physical text of the Constitution on the material, written description of treason, it is my official opinion that Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham both “adhered to” our enemies and gave them “aid and comfort” by refusing to protect our border. Also, if HB-195 (the “Sanctuary State” bill), proposed by members of the current House of Representatives is passed and signed by the Governor, it would be a direct violation to our sovereignty, as described in Article II, Section 2.
Also, for those looking for a definition of “enemy,” as referenced in the law, an “enemy” is “any country, government, group, or person that has been engaged in hostilities, whether or not lawfully authorized, with the United States.” That would include New Mexico.
People who entered this country illegally are by definition criminals and therefore enemies of the state. Giving them sanctuary is the same as giving them comfort and aid. There are unambiguous guidelines for what constitutes asylum, and just because someone wants to come into our country is not a viable reason to do so.
Democrat House Speaker Brian
Simply put, the Governor told New Mexicans hardest-hit by illegal aliens pouring over into our country that “she sees the problem,” however her actions prove the antithesis, as she is doing less to secure our border by removing troops from the area.
Historically, Lujan Grisham has trashed national security, calling a border wall with Mexico “unnecessary, impractical, ineffective, and extremely costly.” Unfortunately, the Governor never took into account the cost of illegal immigration per year versus a one-time investment of a $5 billion border wall.
According to NBC News, the yearly cost of illegal immigration minus tax contributions is $54 billion a year. The figure is meager compared to those of leading immigration groups, such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which estimates it as much closer to $116 billion annually. Either way, it would be $49 -110 billion more than a simple, one-time investment in an impenetrable structure keeping dangers away from America and its people.
EGOlf made news earlier this month by blatantly defying House of Representatives rules by closing debate on a critical gun bill before the debate period was up. The Democrats, now with a hefty majority in the House can pass through whatever they want, but still can’t stomach doing it by the rulebook.
The carelessness and arrogance displayed by EGOlf and Grisham show just how out of touch they are with the common New Mexican, who has to deal with the costly effects of illegal immigration, as Lujan Grisham herself said AT OUR DOORSTEPS! The Governor putting the welfare of criminal illegal aliens before law-abiding New Mexicans is an act of treason.
Speaker EGOlf’s unwillingness to even listen to the people of New Mexico is not only concerning, but actionable. I would not go as far as to say it is impeachable, however, his obstruction is something to take note of. Just because Grisham and EGOlf hold high offices, there are are no excuses for abuses of power.
New Mexico’s Democrat Party is obviously more interested in keeping its corrupt-to-the-core leaders in power than in doing the right thing. Let’s see how that works out come November 2020, unless, by some miracle, the news is leaked of the Governor’s underhanded leadership, and she is forcibly removed from office, along with her pal, Brian EGOlf.
